Are Stiletto Nails The Shape For You?
Not sure if you’ve seen one of the latest trends to emerge over the winter – The Stiletto Nail. Adorning the fingers of some top celebrities, such as Lady Gaga (who else!), Beyoncé, Adele, Jessie J and Rita Ora, Stiletto nails are all about making a fashion statement and the more pointed they are, the better.Or are they?
Making a statement with stiletto nails is a great way to be bang on trend, as long as you take practical old everyday living into account – DAMN YOU EVERYDAY NORMAL LIVING! Think keys, iPhone swiping, necklaces, etc. Not to mention managing the kids without leaving scratch marks 🙂
The other thing to bear in mind is that the construction of your natural nail, can’t necessarily support sexy talons. For instance, Jessica Manicures promote the Squoval shape (see below), which looks sexy, but also supports the structure of the nail.
In the salons, we have been oval’ing off ladies natural nails with a more rounded point (see above) and they look lovely, long and slender, and, with the right colour to suit your outfit, your nails will really stand out.
Our recommendation ladies is to try it, DON’T BE SUCH A SQUARE!!
